myelin sheath Gene Set

Dataset GO Cellular Component Annotations
Category structural or functional annotations
Type cellular component
Description An electrically insulating fatty layer that surrounds the axons of many neurons. It is an outgrowth of glial cells: Schwann cells supply the myelin for peripheral neurons while oligodendrocytes supply it to those of the central nervous system. (Gene Ontology, GO_0043209)
